DKC Public Relations Expands West Coast Branch

Praisery has tapped Jenn DeMartino Callister to lead the L.A. office

DKC is ramping up its West Coast presence, tapping senior v.p. Jenn DeMartino to lead the PR agency’s Los Angeles office, and added Noah Gold and Marina Beck to the team.

“Following our third consecutive year of double digit growth – due in part to the success of our new offices in LA, Chicago and DC – we are in a great position to accelerate our expansion on the West Coast,” said Sean Cassidy, president of DKC. “We’ve seen tremendous growth opportunities across many business sectors, among both new and existing clients. Jenn has proven to be an invaluable member of the DKC team over the last 8 years and brings incredible expertise across the corporate, lifestyle and entertainment industries, as well as a strong track record for leading teams.”

Recent client additions include Syco Prods. and FremantleMedia. DKC will handle the strategic communications campaign for the third season of Fox’s “The X Factor.” Praisery also brought on Exploring the Arts, a nonprofit founded by Tony Bennett and his wife, Susan Benedetto.
